Just a Comment !
Don't forget to check out the young Donald O'Connor, playing Donny. Not a bad way to wile away part of an evening. More of a musical vehicle than anything else, but pleasant none the less !

It's Shemp for Gods' sakes!
Without a doubt we have to appreciate this short just because it has Shemp in it.

This really doesnÃÂt try to amount to much but a World War II entertainment vehicle. The Andrews Sisters, Dick Foran, Huntz Hall, and Shemp from the Three Stooges (Yes!) all are here, the main story is about a singer wanting to get into combat service but canÃÂt because of flat feet, and thereÃÂs some other minor needer-natters going on too, but thereÃÂs nothing earth-shattering divulged here. No, youÃÂll be getting a dozen or so songs, most of them heavily patriotic, most of them hardly known today (I actually recognized Rinky-Dinky-Parlez-Vous only because IÃÂve heard it recently). This movie IS fun, actually. The Andrews Sisters know how to entertain (watch them!) and are supported nicely by a wide range of entertainers. Foran is a great trumpeter, and Shemp does his whole Three Stooges routine without a Curly or Moe around. A little gem.

Great musical movie from the WWII era.
This movie takes place in World War II and it tells the story of a rebellious person who got drafted in the Army, who has trouble towing the line until he meets the daughter of a retired officer. The Andrews Sisters, along with Harry James and His Orchestra provide the music with "Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me)" being the most famous of the songs featured in the film while another song I like is "Six Jerks In a Jeep" which although it was heard in the movie, Decca didn't ever release it and it wasn't released until MCA put out a "Rarities" comp in 1983, and also "Three Little Sisters" is another one of their well-known classics. This is a must download or if you are willing to pay the cash to see it, it is out on DVD as well.
